The architect is at work on Washington, D.C.’s $500 million Museum of African American History and Culture.
Located right on the National Mall, it’s set to open next year.

Across the globe, Adjaye recently unveiled plans for a geometric-looking children’s cancer treatment center in Rwanda that incorporates shapes and colors favored by local artists.

He’s also the man behind Oslo’s traditional-meets-modern Nobel Peace Center. Closer to home, his cantilevered affordable housing opened its doors in Harlem last summer — the same neighborhood where he is overhauling the Studio Museum.

Adjaye has also designed private homes for the late designer Alexander McQueen and actor Ewan McGregor, among other bold-faced names. []
